The Lantern Community Vision

In The Lantern Community excellence in social care is embedded in holistic Camphill values and practices. We create life-enhancing opportunities for adults with Learning Disabilities who value and support each other to achieve their full potential by living, learning and working together. 

The Lantern Community aims to provide a home life, fulfilling work, friendship, social interaction, opportunities for personal growth, adult education and cultural and spiritual inspiration for adults with a learning disability. This takes place in a community which develops from the mutual support that each individual gives and receives.
